Tray icon implemented

Now you don't have to run two different programs. Now you can start the daemon application from within the gui. There is also a tray icon thingy. There is supposed to be a joystick icon but that's for later.

Easy to install for GNU/Linux and Windows

Now sdljava is included in the release so you don't have to install it seperately. For Windows users, I also included the SDL runtime environment .dll file in the release. I might do that with the GNU/Linux .so files as well but it's more common for GNU/Linux users to have SDL installed.

For GNU/Linux there are two shell files, and read more

First "easy to install" version for GNU/Linux

First release!

I have just release the first alfa version of jojsticken. It's not an easy point and click installer so if that's what you want, you better stay tuned for a bit longer.

Feature request anybody?


I'm rewriting rejoystick, in java with sdljava (sdl bindings for java).

Do you want a feature that's missing in rejoystick? Well then, go to and add the feature you want.

Stay tuned, the first version will soon be release. (I have some exams now the following 1-2 weeks, so we'll see when there's time.)... read more
